TC: Steve Jobs says iTablet "Will be the Most Important Thing I've Ever Done"

Not much hear besides the title -- Steve Jobs says the iTablet/iSlate/iPad "will be the most important thing I've ever done" -- which TechCrunch says they haven't heard first hand but have heard second and third hand from multiple sources. Wait... what?

Okay, let's have fun and assume it's true. This from the man who brought or helped bring the Apple II, Macintosh, iPod, iTunes, Apple Retail, Pixar, and the iPhone to market? If he's really that excited about the tablet, then it will be tough to set expectations any hi

Palm Pre, Palm Pix, webOS Review from an iPhone Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

Palm Pre, Palm Pix, webOS Review from an iPhone Perspective -- Smartphone Round Robin

My first smartphone was a Palm Treo 600 and so my last 2009 Smartphone Round Robin "away" review focusing on Palm's new webOS platform as embodied by the Palm Pre and Palm Pix does not lack for symmetry. Between the two, last year I reviewed the Palm Treo Pro which I quipped was more HTC than Palm, ran Windows Mobile and not a Palm-made OS, and had a keyboard that was hard to consider "pro" level. 3 years of round robin, three totally different platforms from Palm, and only this review for me to try and make my own sense out of it.

Luckily I had the mobile accomplisher himself, our editor-in-chief Dieter Bohn to show me Palm's new platform and their new devices, and the truly exceptional community over at PreCentral.net Forums to help understand where it's at and where it's going.

(And just a reminder, every day you post on that PreCentral.net thread, or any of the official Round Robin threads, is another day you're entered to win one of six (6!) new smartphones!)

Now let's get this on...

Google CEO - Relationship with Apple "Stable, Stable"

Google CEO - Relationship with Apple "Stable, Stable"

AppleInsider reports that during Google's quarterly earnings call, CEO Eric Schmidt was asked about Google's relationship with Apple, and responded:

"I, as a former board member, have a special spot for Apple in my heart, but I will tell you Apple is a very well run company. They have a lot of very good stuff coming. We have a couple of very good partnerships with them, and we also compete with them in a couple of areas. My guess is that is a pretty stable situation for awhile."

Review: NDrive USA Navigation for iPhone

Review: NDrive USA Navigation for iPhone

(Ndrive Navigation for iPhone Forum Review by cjvitek. For more Forum Reviews, see the TiPb iPhone App Store Forum Review Index!)

NDrive USA [$32.99 - iTunes link] is a new GPS app which features turn by turn direction, entering the already crowded marketplace. NDrive prides itself on a simple interface, and when looking at the map, that is readily apparent. The map itself has little of the clutter that some of the other apps have – no different colors for different land types, no buildings popping in, no markers for POIs, etc. Just you, the map, and the route. Some people may prefer this approach, others may not. I will point out that in some locations, you do have 3D buildings appear – certainly not in Edinburg TX, however.

What TiPb Really Wants from the iTablet -- No More Tech Support Calls from Mom

What TiPb Really Wants from the iTablet -- No More Tech Support Calls from Mom

TiPb's iTablet hopes and dreams are fairly simple -- Apple, please make us a device we can give to our moms and never get another tech support call back from them in our lives.

Okay, maybe never is dreaming in AMOLED color, but we'd settle for seldom at this point. And we don't mean to pick on mom -- feel free to substitute or add dad, siblings, neighbors, and everyone else to the list.

Apple's iPhone Ranked #1 in Mobile Web in Americas and Europe

AdMob released its latest report and it states the iPhone is the leading smartphone not only in the Americas, but in Europe as well. This news should really come to no surprise to any of our readers, and it's not the first signs of Apple's dominance in the smartphone world as we've reported its U.S. success of mobile web traffic previously. As you can see, the iPhone is annihilating the competition regarding mobile traffic in some major markets.

iPhone Keyboard vs. Pen, Laptop, Newton, Palm Graffiti, Treo

iPhone Keyboard vs. Pen, Laptop, Newton, Palm Graffiti, Treo

Phil Gyford decided to take an old fashioned pen and paper, a MacBook laptop computer, an Apple Newton MessagePad 2100 with handwriting recognition, a Palm Vx with Graffiti input, a Palm 650 with a physical keyboard, and an Apple iPhone 3G with virtual multitouch keyboard and see how long it took him to enter a well-memorized 221 word passage.

The MacBook keyboard won, of course, with the iPhone second and the Treo and pen and paper a close third and fourth. Newton and Graffiti handwriting recognition didn't fair nearly so well.
